If Only I Had The Cash

So today i'm going to be posting about my semi-dream bike. The Specialized Camber.

Now of course i like the bike for it's awesome budget components but that paint scheme is something else. The Stereotypical red and white colouring looks well, awesome, I'm not gonna lie that's the main reason i want the bike.
The Shimano transmission looks great and is really responsive, as always with shimano you get what you pay for, it may not be top of the range but it's up there with the best.
However i don't agree with mixing the Alivio shifters, as good as they may be, I believe the transmission should all match up. Maybe it doesn't matter but that's just me.
Next on my list is the Sram manufactured Rockshox Recon Silver Tk forks. I've seen these forks in action a fair few times, and I have good things to say about them, I would definitely buy these as an upgrade for my bike.
The ario Rl rear shock is a base range product, but what you're paying for the bike you're getting your moneys worth.
The Tektro Draco Hydraulic discs are very good budget brakes. I have the model below these and they are very responsive, great stopping power, but they still give a fair bit of modulation for braking. So I can only imagine the increase in quality from mine to these.
Anyway as this is the 2011 model it's currently decreasing in price, it's already dropped from £1300 to £999. So get down to your nearest stockist for a quality buy. Hope I've been of some help.
Please leave a request if there are any components or bikes you'd like a review of. Till next time, T'ra
